June 4 is Hug Your Cat Day! Anyone that adores cats doesn’t need a national holiday to encourage them to do this, but I love that today is a day in which people everywhere are encouraged to hug a cat. Whether you are the proud housemate of a furry feline, or you are presently without cat, Hug Your Cat Day is the perfect excuse to take some time out of your day to embrace a feline.
The obvious downside to the hug-a-feline-friend day is that people without cats may be left out. If this is the case for you, simply adapt it into “Hug Someone Else’s Cat Day, or “Hug a Shelter Cat Day”. Visit a shelter and spend some time with cats that desperately need to feel love and affection.
No matter what’s happening in your life, and no matter how troubling things seem, we can always count on our furry feline friends to be there. I can tell you from experience that no matter how down you are feeling, hugging a cat will turn that frown upside down. Cats’ specialty is giving unconditional love; when you give a hug to a cat, you receive tenfold. (Note: the cat you hug must be a willing participant or it could go awry in a millisecond). So when you encounter a cat today, show some love and give them a hug.
Warning: Hugging cats has been proven to lift your mood, raise your vibration, and even fall in love. Proceed with caution. They are stalkers and hunters. They know how to capture an unsuspecting love victim.
Now get out there and hug a cat!
